Yes, your life does flash before your eyes right before you die, but not exactly like it does in the movies.  A new study out of Israel focused on people who've had near-death experiences and what happened in the moments right before they were going to die. They all said their life flashed before their eyes, but not in chronological order.

Instead, they just had a rush of memories of big moments in their life in a random order and sometimes, it was like they were observing those moments from someone else's point of view.
